In the latest in the Stephanie Plum series, the disaster-prone bounty hunter attracts explosions, danger and the deranged like no other. "I'm thinking of marrying a woman who gets rockets launched into her living room," sighs her boyfriend. Unconvinced she should try a less eventful occupation and assisted by her grandma and a dwarf, Stephanie persists. Driven by the need to pay her rent and by her addiction to the adrenaline of chasing and being chased by bad guys, Stephanie embarks upon a mission to find out the truth behind the disappearance of her bail bond absconder. The divinely delectable Ranger enlists her help with a problem of his own and also ever obligingly comes to her aid whenever required. Enjoyable escapism.
